General Manager at Liverpool Plains Shire Council
For me, history is important; Statewide exists because no else cared. The big players didn’t want to touch local government in the 1990s because we were seen as high risk. So we came together and created this cooperative to look after ourselves when no one else would.
Statewide is different because we all own it, we all share in it and we look after each other. It’s about members, not profits.
